BEDFORDSHIRE (CelebrityAccess) Luton Town Football Club has been given the green light to build a new stadium at Power Court in the city of the same name in Bedfordshire, England.
The capacity will be 17,500 and will rise to 23,000 as the club grows, according to Pan Stadia. The stadium will also feature new public spaces and facilities including a 1,800-capacity live events venue, bars, restaurants, a hotel and 550 apartments, Pan Stadia said. The club revealed details about the new stadium in 2015.
“It would instantly elevate our footballing ambition to another level,” club chief executive Gary Sweet said. “If Leicester City in a new surrounding can win the Premier League, then so can we, it will increase our support base and make sure Luton Town are permanently financially viable going forward.
“The gravity and importance of this decision should not be under-estimated. For Luton Town Football Club, and its loyal supporters – the security of a new home at Power Court means that we can look to the future with great optimism.
“It means that the Club will be able to compete at a higher level, and to progress towards our ambitions for more success on the football pitch. But also, and perhaps even more importantly, that we can continue to provide a place for the people of Luton to gather with friends and family as a community, as we have since the Club began in 1885 – almost 135 years ago. “
